I turn 43 today. I’m humbled and lucky that I have everything I could possibly need or want.
But many others are hurting, struggling. I’m hopeful that we can start to turn the ship around if we support the right causes.
So I could really use your help right now.
I’d be so appreciative if you’d consider donating whatever you can to the causes below. Even just a few bucks can make a big difference.
I’ve tried to provide a variety of things I care about, with the most important being the upcoming election. But if you’re not politically minded or don’t agree with my politics, I hope something else on this list hits home for you. But if not, that’s OK too!
Thanks in advance for all the birthday wishes and contributions. Y’all are wonderful people and I look forward to REALLY celebrating in three weeks. 🙏
🇺🇸✅ The 2020 Election
- Biden / Harris — Need I say more?
- Swing The Senate — Contributes to 8 tightly contested races where we have a chance to push McConnel and company out of power.
- Defend The House — We need to hang onto The House at minimum, and this helps support 24 important races.
✊🏿❤️ Social Causes
- Black Lives Matter — So much injustice for so long. Eradicate hate and fight for equality for those that have been marginalized for centuries.
- Greater Chicago Food Depository — The GCFD does important work helping to feed those around Chicago who do not have a reliable source of food.
- Amanda Hinchman’s Community Pantry Donation Pods — Amanda has been doing great work with her local community in gathering much needed supplies and delivering them to the folks who need them most.
👧👦 Our Little Ones
- Lurie’s Children’s Hopsital — One of our boys had to go to Lurie’s for emergency surgery when he was just one month old. I’ll never forget what these folks did for us in caring for our son.
- St. Jude’s — Their work in pediatric cancer and diseases is tremendously important.
🐶🐱 Furry Friends
- Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue — This is where we adopted Eugene from! They work to specifically rescue bully breeds and to help turn the inaccurate, completely false narrative that the breed is dangerous or difficult.
- Kay’s Animal Shelter — A local shelter where we adopted our first dog Parker back in 2004. A wonderful local organization.
- One Tail At A Time — A Chicago based shelter that continues to do great work in helping many, many dogs and cats find their forever homes.
- Young At Heart — I’ve got a real soft spot for senior pets, and this is a local shelter that specifically works to help those pets either get placed or live out their golden years in a wonderful facility.
